Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day.
We are all made to love God. Every single one of us can turn our heart toward God and love Him with all of it. As has been said, “You can change your mind at any time.” We can all turn from sin and to God. That is not beyond any of us. If so, we’re screwed. Badly.
And yet, only you can love God with the heart He gave you. No one else can love God with your heart. No one else can love God as you were created to be.
This is rich to me. It’s the simplest thing we can do, yet the profoundest.
God equips us to do what we are meant to do. We put so much pressure on ourselves as if we are all suppose to be divinely appointed rocket surgeons.
Well, I guess if that’s what we were all meant to be, our good and loving Creator would equip us accordingly. And we would have a plethora of healthy rockets lying around.
All you have to do is what every single person is capable of and yet what only you can and were meant to do:
Love who you came from with the heart you were given.
Out of true love flows devotion and service with no feelings of obligation.
